I'd just like to say that I'm not sure why everyone is so angry with each other. John and myself had a telephone converstation. A comment about It was picked up on one of the newgroups. I stated there and then that I didn't feel it to be relevant. As far as I am concered that is the end of the story. What was disgussed is between myself and John is just that; between John and myself.

However, I did NOT call John to ask about subscription numbers. That is completely fabricated and are the kind of comments that can land people in trouble. Nor did I call to ask about any other sensitive information. As is stated in the in the article, it was a 'courtesy call', nothing more nothing less. I wanted to be upfront with JC so that he had heard it from me, not through the grape vine where things can get twisted, that I would be starting a new magazine. Anyone who interprets that as a way to get sensitive information out of another is, to be frank, rather misguided and I would object to such things being said about myself or John regarding that conversation.

Aside from this, I think that people should just in general be more positive. I am doing what I'm doing for my own reasons, of which the most important is enjoyment. I dare say that JC is doing the same. I wish people would give up arguing and work together. There is just no need for the constant bitching- because that is what it is. We all have a fanasitc opportunity here, (to continue the market and make it grow so that others have the benefit of it too). For goodness sake get it together! :-D Louie Smith

    Martin Hansen describes his time as both a punter and an exhibitor at this year's annual RISC OS event held in the south west of the UK. While there were no major announcements ahead of the show, the otherwise friendly and mildly busy atmosphere was coloured by Friday's tragic loss of Paul Vigay.
